The Parson Red Heads
So I missed The Parson Red Heads when they came through Minneapolis on the 16th at the University of Minnesota. I meant to go, but .…
Do you remember the Yearling album from 2011 by The Parson Red Heads? The album is out of print, but it got re-issued on a deluxe edition last Tuesday (01/22) via Second Motion Records.
What's new in the new version? It includes all the original tracks, plus six tracks from the Murmerations EP, so it's a nice deal if you haven't already own the album.
The band is currently on tour with He's My Brother She's My Sister (we like them) and Rayland Baxter:
01/25 Bellingham, WA - Green Frog
01/26 Vancouver, BC - The Waldorf
01/27 Seattle, WA - Sunset Tavern
In other red news:
BLOOD RED SHOES
Blood Red Shoes' EP, Water, is out now via V2 / Cooperative Music. The highlight from the EP is a track called "Red River", which you can watch on YouTube.
If you were wondering about the video, it was shot during their recent trip to Russia: "It was our first time over and was kind of insane, for many reasons. From the minute we landed and had a 4 hour fight with customs to get our gear into the country, to the last night when we made a 4am pilgrimage to Red Square, it was one hell of an experience. A crazy and beautiful country with crazy and beautiful people, one of the most full on crowds we've ever had on our first trip to a country."
U.S. fans should not that their first two albums, Box of Secrets and Fire Like This is now available in the States.
The new Redwood Plan record called Green Light Go is coming out February 12th.
Critics seems to really love the frontwoman, Lesli Wood, often calling her performances as "energetic" and "kick ass."
They're heading out on tour in support of the album:
02.15.13 - Seattle, WA @ Neumos
02.27.13 - Salt Lake City, UT @ Shred Shed
02.28.13 - Denver, CO @ Lion's Lair
03.02.13 - Wichita, KS @ Kirby's
03.03.13 - Chicago, IL @ Empty Bottle
PS, Chaos Chaos (we saw their first ever live show last October) is opening for them at their record release show.
Absolutely no information was sent for this artist, White Blush. When you send in music submissions, please include as much information as possible.
All I know is that White Blush is the stagename for India Pale Ale beer-drinker Carol Rhyu from Los Angeles (I am assuming this considering that most artists aren't from Louisiana.)
The credits lists "All songs written, performed, and produced by Carol Rhyu" on her self-titled EP, so cover lovers should weep that it's not Dolly Parton's "Jolene." You can stream the EP at whiteblush.bandcamp.com.
White Blush will be playing a free show in LA at The Bootleg Bar on Monday, February 18th at 8:00pm.
Watching The Tonight Show with Jay Leno tonight (01/24)? Look for Blue Sky Riders to appear as musical guests.
Blue Sky Riders are a country superteam of Kenny Loggins, Georgia Middleman, and Gary Burr, and their album, Finally Home, is coming out next week, January 29.
Expect the band to do more tour dates/or announcements soon, all I have officially is listed below:
02/02/13 Nashville, TN 3rd & Lindsley
04/28/13 Indio, CA Empire Polo Field
